six hands

6 hands reviewed trying to figure out ranges

Hand 1.

BTN: $253.19
SB: $94.88
BB: $112.50
UTG: $104.91
MP: $101.58
Hero (CO): $103.35

Pre Flop: ($1.50) Hero is CO with Q of clubs T of spades
2 folds, Hero raises to $3, 1 fold, SB calls $2.50, 1 fold

Flop: ($7.00) T of clubs 9 of hearts 6 of clubs(2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $5.00, SB calls $5

Turn: ($17.00) Q of spades(2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $13.00, SB raises to $27.57, Hero calls $14.57

River: ($72.14) 7 of clubs(2 players)
SB bets $59.31, Hero folds

SB is 35/10/5 wtsd 33 over 88 hands calls open from SB 31%
so his range is all pocket pairs 22-88, all suited connectors 56s-KQs, Big broadways, any suited ace, suited gappers 75+, some suited kings and suited kings,  A6o-AT0 hands and all K8o+, I think he 3bets AK and 99+.

Flop: ($7.00) T of clubs 9 of hearts 6 of clubs (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $5.00, SB calls $5

I hit top pair and bet for value, and he quickly calls. I do not think this board removes many of his hands from his range except the small pocket pairs and all the Ksuited and Qsuited that are not clubs, as well as the smaller suited Aces. I think he peels all pair and gutshots aswell as over cards and gutshots. Still leaving most of his range in the hand but with me dominating it a majority of the time.

Turn: ($17.00) Q of spades (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $13.00SB raises to $27.57, Hero calls $14.57

I turn top two and see no reason to give him free cards so I value bet. He times a bit and min raises. I think this narrows his range down alot. It removes all hands like A6-AT, and narrows it down to top pair with flush draws, top pairs with straight, strong flush draws with straight outs, made straights, smaller two pairs, like Q9 and Q6s. I think I am behind his range nearly all of the time but I have top two and can improve to top boat with implied odds against all of the hands left in his range.

Pot is now 57.57 and it is 14.57 to call

roughly need 25% to call and pokerstove says I am around 35% + there is money behind, so I call.

River: ($72.14) 7 of clubs (2 players)
SB bets $59.31, Hero folds

River brings in the worst card in the deck and villain shoves.

Hand 2.

Hero (BTN): $105.00
SB: $60.60
BB: $106.05
UTG: $111.25
MP: $123.15
CO: $100.00

Pre Flop: ($1.50) Hero is BTN with J of spades J of diamonds
3 folds, Hero raises to $3, SB calls $2.50, 1 fold

Flop: ($7.00) T of hearts 2 of clubs 7 of diamonds(2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $7.00, SB calls $7

Turn: ($21.00) 5 of clubs(2 players)
SB bets $7.00, Hero raises to $21, SB calls $14

River: ($63.00) K of clubs(2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $31.50, SB calls $29.60 all in

Final Pot: $122.20
SB shows 2 of spades 2 of diamonds
SB wins $119.20
(Rake: $3.00)

Villain is 45/12/0 wtsd 25 over a small sample of 56 hands. Preflop his range is very wide and I am happy to cbet for value expecting any pair, and gutshot and straight draw to call. When villain donks the turn to me this looks like a weak hand like top pair that does not want to face a large bet, obviously I want to disappoint him so I bet around the size of the pot had he not donked. he calls and the bdfd completes, he checks. At this point I can get value from only Tx hands and thats a narrow part of his range, the flush got there and I cant expect a worse hand than Tx to call, nor will a better hand fold, so I should have checked back. This hand was a mistake especially on the river, I should just check.

Hand 3.

BB: $102.50
UTG: $158.67
CO: $35.00
Hero (BTN): $131.34

BB bets $27.00, Hero raises to $105.34, BB calls $49.50 all in

Turn: ($209.00) 9 of hearts(2 players - 1 is all in)

Final Pot: $209.00
BB shows A of hearts A of spades
Hero shows K of diamonds K of spades
Hero wins $28.84
BB wins $206.00
(Rake: $-25.84)

Not just a cooler? There are a number or reasons why this is close. UTG is tight 18/16 player over 146 hands UTG open 14%, BB is even tighter and more aggressive 16/12/9 with no 4bet so far. So I pick up KK on the BTN and 3bet. BB makes a 4bet and now I have to decide. His range will be strong, There are 6 combos of AA, 8 combos of AK and 6 combos of QQ making my equity 57%. However, if we discount half the combos of AK and half the combos of QQ we are now flipping at 51%, get rid of all non AKs combos and we have become dominated 44%. However, given that there is now 37 in the pot and it is 16 to call I have to call math wise, however this is one of those nasty spots where I think if I know villains range is ONLY AKs and AA here I can fold? I dont know what are your thoughs?


BTN: $109.67
SB: $227.34
BB: $100.00
Hero (UTG): $100.00

Flop: ($10.00) Q of diamonds 4 of diamonds 2 of spades(3 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $6.00, MP folds, SB calls $6

Turn: ($22.00) 3 of clubs(2 players)
SB checks, Hero checks

River: ($22.00) 4 of spades(2 players)
SB bets $20.90, Hero calls $20.90

Villain is LAGTARD playing 57/46/20 with cbet of 73 and WTSD of 57 over 164 hands. I bet this flop as a cbet and he calls. I put him on a weak top pair, any flush draw and pair and gutshot. He checks and I check behind. I think I should have bet the turn here to get value from flush draws and random crap. River pairs the 4 and he instapots. I make a quick judgement that the FDs missed and I doubt that just a weak naked Queen would pot it so I think his range is polarized to monsters like boats or just missed draws so I call. Turns out I was wrong but I dont hate my play.

Final Pot: $63.80
SB shows 4 of hearts 3 of hearts
Hero mucks 9 of clubs 9 of spades
SB wins $60.30
(Rake: $3.50)

(Rake: $3.50)

In this hand I was concerned by the donkbet asvillain was calling 38% from sb and 54% from bb, this is pretty much any two cards, including 75 and T7. However those are a small part of his range that donks. The rest of the range are random two pairs, straight draws, smaller sets and bluffs, the majority being bluffs. I thought that it would be best to let him barrel all his bluffs and call down. However on the turn and river I became more certain he was going for value with a nut type hand. I didnt want to raise river as I dont think he would call without at least a straight.

Hand 5.

UTG: $100.00
MP: $106.00
CO: $104.50
Hero (BTN): $101.50
SB: $30.50
BB: $100.00

Pre Flop: ($1.50) Hero is BTN with K of clubs A of clubs
1 fold, MP raises to $3, CO calls $3, Hero raises to $13, 2 folds, MP raises to $31, 1 fold, Hero raises to $101.50, MP calls $70.50

Flop: ($207.50) 7 of spades 5 of clubs 2 of spades(2 players)

Turn: ($207.50) 6 of spades(2 players)

River: ($207.50) J of diamonds(2 players)

Final Pot: $207.50
MP shows A of spades A of diamonds
Hero mucks K of clubs A of clubs
MP wins $204.00
(Rake: $3.50)

Pretty standard  - With me 3betting the button, I can be perceived as squeezing by MP and as am only crushed by AA and dog to KK, and given the money in the pot I am happy to get it in though I am not jumping for joy.

Hand 6.


UTG: $119.59
Hero (MP): $119.30
CO: $104.64
BTN: $83.88
SB: $187.65
BB: $100.00

UTG raises to $3, Hero raises to $10, 4 folds, UTG raises to $26, Hero raises to $119.30, UTG calls $93.30

Flop: ($240.10) 7 of spades 5 of hearts 4 of hearts(2 players)

Turn: ($240.10) 2 of hearts(2 players)

River: ($240.10) 4 of spades(2 players)

Final Pot: $240.10
UTG shows A of hearts A of clubs
Hero mucks K of hearts K of spades
UTG wins $237.10
(Rake: $3.00)

I have 209 hands on the UTG - opens EP 8% which is a very strong range. Being as we are both 120 deep and he opens only 8% utg I guess its not too much of a shock I run into AA here, can I ever fold KK preflop though? I think other ways to play KK here would be to flat and hope to get squeezed by another player behind, but I think that just creates more people in the pot who would be more willing to flat behind, without knowing more about the other opponents I think that is too far of a stretch, also playing KK OOP in a small pot is never good as the stacks rarely get in good with a huge SPR. Guess its just a cooler but them happening all at onces makes me think that I should be somehow laying these down!
